I’m surprised that I haven’t heard more talk about us taking Courtney Upshaw in the first round. For some reason people have him labeled as strictly a linebacker in a 3-4. But (according to nfl.com & CBSsports.com) Upshaw is 6’2, 272. Compare his size to Derrick Morgan who is 6’3, 278. Upshaw is only an inch shorter and 6 pounds lighter that Morgan (and has around 20 pounds on Kamerion Wimbley). I LOVED what I saw from Upshaw this year. I saw Alabama play 4 or 5 times. He could definitely play with his hand in the dirt as a 4-3 defensive end. He has a high motor and was a terror for other offenses. I think he fits exactly what we need on the defensive line. I asked Jim Wyatt about Upshaw in his chat today and this is what he said: What do you think?
